Charter Arms w/o sight

Recently found an old-model stainless Charter .38 Undercover on which the owner has had the front sight completely ground off. My question is, when this gun is held in a normal firing grasp and indexed on a silhouette target, where is it likely to shoot? I'm thinking it will shoot high but I don't know.

Also, if I find I can't hit anything with it, is there any source for old-model Charter barrels?

shoot the thing

Not to be smug, but try the revolver at your range. Try close range and work your way out in distance. The rev. will probably shoot to different points of aim, for different shooters. Give the rev. to a glock shooter and the to a sig shooter, and you will have two different groups, I am guessing. Police stats tell us that most lethal force encounters occur within 7 yards, so the rev. could be a good "belly gun". Charter arms revolvers are not really known for their match accuracy anyway. However, I do agree that sights are good and the other post gave a good source.
